Mesopotamia by Arthur Nersesian

08/20/2010

One part social commentary, one part mystery, and one part Elvis homage, Mesopotamia is a wild ride through our nation’s obsession with tabloid journalism.  Washed up and an alcoholic, former investigative report Sandy Bloomgarten realizes that the landscape of journalism has shifted; a shift that has left her flat broke.  Taking an assignment with a tabloid to cover a runaway bride story in Memphis, Sandy soon finds herself trying to track down a serial murder who is killing Elvis impersonators.  While looking into these killings, she finds herself surrounded by a motley crew: a cheating local minister, an odd band, a small-town PI who was blown up along with his meth lab, and a recluse.  Full of plot zigs and zags, this book is a good read with a nice little mystery and plenty of satire.
